National Taiwan Craft Research & Development Institute

Arts Centre in Zhongzheng

This striking red-and-white building, with its circular neoclassical Chinese-style roof, dates back to just 1956. It was recently converted into the Craft Research & Development Centre where the first two floors showcase Taiwanese designed and made gift products – everything from stationery to silverware – while the top floors are reserved for art, architecture and craft exhibitions and a rooftop organic food court. There are fantastic views from the roof, where you can also get up close to the fantastical glazed roof tiles.
